GCC for Falcon

Postby silvercreekvalley » Wed Jul 22, 2009 4:38 pm

Is there a GCC port for the Falcon that works in regular
TOS? Also does anyone have a recommendation for a
command line tool - I'm using BATCHER which is a bit
limited.

Thx

I think GCC works in plain TOS, but it will probably painful, especially on a stock falcon.
Ain't no space like PeP-space.

no way. i think the last gcc that could have a chance to work in TOS was about 2.7.x version, i.e. something terribly old. newer gcc needs long names filesystem, not speaking about some decent shell.

Didn't know that! To my defense, I have probably used TOS for like 5 minutes the past year :)

That be just the part that boots up Mint/Magic I suppose :lol:

And lots and lots of RAM... Even 10 years ago I occasionally ran out of RAM on my 32Mb Afterburner when trying to compile some of the heavier unix-stuff. Now I don't bother with gcc anymore. Good old PureC compiles entire projects in less time than gcc use to compile hello_world.c.

It depends on your needs -- for me is gcc great because I'm able to cross-compile and debug everything and just test on target machine (Falcon), i.e. no hassle with unreliable Atari setup.

I don't have an unreliable Atari setup, so I do all the development on the target machine ;-)

Yes, this is a good method.

Cross compiling is like fooling around with a transvestite! But you do have a point. My Atari setup isn't unreliable though :-)
